Many people think of “Saint Patrick” only as the name of a holiday that gives them leave to drink lots and lots of beer and maybe parade around publicly in green underwear. However, I doubt that the individual for whom the day is named would approve of such behavior. Patrick (Latin Patricius) was a fifth century Roman-British Christian missionary to Ireland.

I feel like this is really a pamphlet you'd be able to pick up at any churches that might claim to have Saint Patrick buried within their grounds. Quite an extensive bibliography listed at the end but this is certainly not a scholarly work itself.
More of a pamphlet than a book, Federer shares a history of Patrick and "The Confession of Patrick" and his "Letter to Coroticus" which provides insight to Patrick's faith and work as a cleric to the Celtic. The author provides an extensive list of biographical information. I recommend this book to those have an interest in history of Patrick and Ireland.
